Lower back injuries are one of the most common problems seen by chiropractors.

To help keep pre-existing injuries at bay, put a little pillow right at the bottom of your back. Keep the back pillow there for the entire flight, as there is no lumbar support in airline seats.

If you're not as tall as the average person and your legs don't quite hit the ground, it can help your back to put something under your feet. Getting up and walking around is also necessary to minimize injury pain. Walk the aisles regularly during the flight to give your body a break.

If you have questions about flying posture, contact a local physiotherapist or kinesiologist.
